awww, so young. RIP CaptCrunch
awww, so young. RIP CaptCrunch
I only know him as a name on here but it is always sad to lose a fellow FSUer. RIP.
When you are up to your arse in alligators it is difficult to remember you were only meant to be draining the swamp.
I never knew him, but it sounds very much as it is my loss. My thoughts to his family and friends in their loss of someone who sounds like a really great guy

I first met David at 2001 Worlds in Vancouver, Canada. I had flown up by myself from the US not knowing anyone there because I scored a 2nd row seat about a week before the event. David happened to be sitting right behind me in the third row. Being the outgoing guy he was, we talked a lot during that week and realized we saw a lot of things in skating the same way. David already had a big group of friends at the event who were meeting up for fun dinners each night and he invited me along. I ended up having one of the most fun weeks ever and made a friend in David that has lasted all of these years. We attended the Pairs free skate in SLC 2002 Olympics together in a sky box....the event that will live in skating infamy. He came to almost all the big events held in Colorado Springs which was great since I live in Denver. I always looked forward to hanging with him at Nationals and Worlds. He was so much fun and so interesting. We were always gleeful when we got a chance to boo Cinquanta. I was so looking forward to seeing him at US Nationals and/or 4 Continents in Colorado this winter. He seemed to know everyone at these events and everyone wanted to hang around David. I am still in shock of this news. I had received an email this morning too. I still cannot believe it. David and I were the same age and he went way way too soon. Those of us who knew him that are attending US Nationals this year should plan a get-together to celebrate David's life.
I'm shocked and saddened to hear this news - I met David on a few occasions, including at Worlds in Vancouver and Washington. We exchanged e-mails on a few occasions since then but not recently.
May he rest in peace and his family and friends be comforted by their memories.
Can't skate but love to watch
Hopefully, someone can send or point out these lovely tributes to David's family.May he rest in peace and his family and friends be comforted by their memories.
I didn't know him personally on the forum but I've learned a lot from his posts. My well wishes for all his loved ones.
That is so sad.
Aww. My condolences go out to his family.

I didn't know he was CaptCrunch, but did know David from SkateFans, etc. So so young, RIP.
I've only seen his username a handful of times around here, but what a tragic loss.
I shall miss his sharpness in the tennis thread. Rest peacefully.....
I am so sorry and saddened to learn we've lost a very valued member of FSU and a wonderful person. I never did meet CaptCrunch/David in RL, but I always enjoyed our online interactions. I regret I never had the chance to meet him off line.
He will be missed and has left us far too soon.
My condolences and sympathy to his Family.
I never had the pleasure of meeting CaptCrunch/David, but was always entertained by his posts. May he rest in peace.
.....my reaction when I found out Delschoes won worlds

My condolences to his family and many friends. May he RIP.
